There are twenty movies in the MCU so far but there are only three trilogies which belong to some of the franchise’s most important characters; Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor. Their movies have spanned eight years and debuted tons of different characters that have become prominent inclusions to the overall story but which trilogy is the most fun to watch? Well, that’s what I’m here to share with you all. Enjoy!
The Iron Man Trilogy
Iron Man was the first hero to debut in the MCU and his standalone films have been fun to watch. Iron Man is still heralded as one of the best superhero movies ever made but the other two haven’t had the same critical acclaim. Now, personally, my favorite film of the trilogy is Iron Man 2 for its fun story and great characters. Iron Man 3, however, feels a bit disjointed from the overall story.
At first it seems like a great movie as it features Tony’s PTSD but that storyline is forgotten in other films following Iron Man 3. And the end of Iron Man 3 makes it feel like Tony Stark’s story is finished and yet he shows up later on in Age of Ultron. It’s all so confusing.
The Thor Trilogy
I like Thor…now, but there was a time when he wasn’t that great and that’s mainly because his movies weren’t that fun to watch. Thor was okay but it was nowhere near phenomenal. Thor: The Dark World was horrendous. It wasn’t until Thor: Ragnarok where the writers finally figured out how to make a Thor standalone film a lot of fun to watch and boy was it awesome.
Thor is a great character but his trilogy is definitely my least favorite.
The Captain America Trilogy
Oh, this is hands down my favorite trilogy among these three heroes. Every single one of these films has an endearing quality and has brought a smile to my face. The First Avenger wasn’t nearly as good as its sequel buddies but it is still good. And The Winter Soldier and Civil War is Marvel at its best.
These movies have made me time and time again ridiculously happy and I can’t wait to see more of Captain America in Avengers 4.
